Hou Mesterslagter is the quintessence of traditional craftsmanship. With a selection spanning from poultry to beef, pork, lamb, salami, sausages, pre-cooked meals and cold meat, there is something for everyone. It is with good reason that Hou Mesterslagter claims that everything is possible.
You can also find a large supply of homemade delicacies and ready to heat meals made from traditional Danish recipes.
The food is always made from scratch using only fresh ingredients in an old-fashioned manner. We never take the easy way out during preparation.
The family owned company has existed for more than 50 years. A lot has happened in the traditional butcher's shop since Ernst and Kathe Enghøj took over the shop in 1969 and later passed it on to their youngest son.
And the atmosphere? It has been maintained through the years. The atmosphere is delicious and all of your senses are stimulated. It must be an experience to visit the butcher's shop - that is the philosophy at Hou Mesterslagter.
Hou Mesterslagter offers to deliver food, meat and other specialties. You can order food and have it delivered within a radius of 40 kilometres. This is very well-suited for you if you are staying in a holiday home or on a camp-site and want some quality meat for the barbeque.
The store is located at the harbour in Hou so you can order the food beforehand and pick it up on the way home from an excursion to the island of Tunø. For instance cold meat, sausages, smoked meat and salads.
In our assortment you can also find fast food such as burgers, sandwich and pizza.
